Notice of Single-Case Deviation from Competition Requirements: Transfer of Grantee Request for the Detroit Healthy Start Program, Detroit, MI
HRSA will be issuing a grantee transfer without competition for the Detroit Michigan Healthy Start program to the Institute for Population Health (IPH). The IPH will assume responsibility for the Healthy Start program and receive year 5 funding in the amount of $1,575,000, from Grant Number H49MC00147, during the budget period of 6/1/2013-5/31/2014 to support the objectives of the Eliminating Disparities in Perinatal Health Healthy Start Program. The Eliminating Disparities in Perinatal Health Healthy Start Program (H49), CFDA No. 93.926, is authorized by the Public Health Service Act, Title III, Part D, Section 330H (42 USC 254c-8). The purpose of the Eliminating Disparities in Perinatal Health Healthy Start Program is to address significant disparities in perinatal health. Differences in perinatal health indicators may occur by virtue of education, income, disability, or living in rural/isolated areas. To address disparities and the factors contributing to them, project services have been designed to cover the pregnancy and interconceptional phases for women and infants residing in the proposed project area. In order to promote longer interconceptional periods and prevent relapses of risk behaviors, the women and infants are to be followed through the infant's second year of life and/or two years following delivery.
